I love Oreo cookies! It reminds me of Junior high school, when I first tried them after a friend brought a pack to class. I love the combination of the crunchy chocolate cookies with the creamy vanilla-flavored filling. It’s great by itself, but turns even better with a glass of milk.
As a big fan of these oh-so popular cookies, I made tons of recipes using Oreo cookies over the years, and I always think of new ways to add them to my cakes and desserts. This is how this next recipe was thought of.
This no bake Oreo cheesecake pie is so easy to make and perfect for the summer. As it requires no baking and you don’t need to turn on the oven, it’s such a great solution for hot summer days when it’s just too hot to bake. It’s made of an Oreo cookie crust filled with Oreo cheesecake filling and topped with whole Oreo cookies.
I like to serve it with warm chocolate ganache, which makes it a fancy-looking dessert, but even without any sauce it’s delicious and kids love it too!
